Default Age this jaw for us.

We try and age all our deer by their jaws. Never seen one like this. Help us out here.

1. How old do you think?
2. What do you think happened to it?

I may be completely wrong but isn't that a yearling jaw??? Looks like it hasn't gotten its third molar like it just lost its baby tooth!!! Im thinking that deer is 1 1/2 or less!!

I know squat about aging teeth but those are really pointy teeth. I vote really young.

Ya they do weird things sometimes. Looks like maybe a 5 year old. And I say "maybe" because there isn't much dentine showing on that last tooth.

Yeah it looks like the pre molar on the left jaw in the first pic is just now starting to grow and the right hasn't started yet. Just my opinion of course!!

I would go 4 or 5 based off of those pics but with those teeth missing it is a guess.

Ok might have been unfair without this picture. Sorry I didnt even think about it. This deers live weight was around 200 pounds. He was a 8 point and taken by one of our munchkins Layton.

No clue on the age but looks like it might have been gored by an antler in a fight?

If you killed that deer in East Texas, the missing tooth is normal!

I have a set of jawbones from the doe I shot in October with that same gap--same tooth. Upper palate was a bit messed up too. My guess, and purely a guess is that someone tried a head shot in the past and hit the teeth--
